-changing performance by mitt romney in last night's debate, republican governor of new jersey, governor chris christie. chris, you happen to be right. >> good morning, mika. good morning, joe. >> what happened, chris? what do you got a crystal ball? chris christie's krystal ball spelled with a "kar"? >> i don't think anybody else was paying attention. every time mitt romney had his back against the wall and they had a debate, he came out and had a game-changing debate. ask rick perry, ask newt gingrich. every time he's done it. and on sunday, i just came out and said exactly what i believed, which was i've seen this guy do this before. and i think he's going to do it again. and he did last night. >> what happened to the president? everybody's stunned. again, his supporters, i think, and it's so strange how the shoe is suddenly on the other foot. we republicans have been so frustrated that mitt romney's not been able to press our case on why the past four years haven't worked. last night you heard democrats so frustrated about the fact that the president couldn't press his case. i mean, why do you thin

? >> well, romney considered that path and he took that path, joe, and he tried to press his case last night. the challenge for him was to come out with the kind of aggression that could score for him while still being respectful for the president. and i think he met that challenge. he was on offense most of the time, put the president back on his heels on his record. and he challenged him directly. i thought the strongest moment that he had was when he directly challenged the president on his failure to cut the deficit over the last four years. and he cast that failure not just as a policy issue, but also as a moral issue. >> i think it's not just an economic issue. i think it's a moral issue. i think it's frankly not moral for my generation to keep spending massively more than we take in knowing those burdens will be passed on to the next generation. and they're going to be paying the interest and the principal all their lives and the amount of debt we're adding at a trillion a year is simply not moral. >> the president came back with arguments that were familiar trying to get governor rom

debate between barak obama and mitt romney is tomorrow night and the campaigns are doing whatever they can to get ready. actually i heard that the obama campaign is a little worried 'cause during his flight to nevada on sunday, the president apparently watched four hours of football instead of studying.

[ laughter ] >> steve: funny. >> brian: i did not hear that. is that the premise of that joke true? that he watched four hours of football? >> martha: you can also go back to the notion that it shouldn't take that much studying to get ready for this. >> steve: you should know. >> martha: they've been working on these issues, they've been campaigning on these issues across the country for months and months and months. does it really take that much studying to get ready for this? >> brian: is it wrong to disagree with martha? >> martha: absolutely. ask hemmer. >> brian: i think it's totally different when someone is coming at you and saying you're wrong about this and defending something yo

campaign released a statement last night, calling the video a, quote, transparent attempt to change the subject ahead of the debate. the romney campaign distanced itself from the video saying it had no involvement with the release. paul ryan speaking about a moral tipping point in united states, six months before romney's 47% remark. >> before too long we could become a society we were never, ever intended to be. we could become a society where the net majority of americans are takers, not makers. today 70% of americans get more benefit from the federal government in dollar value than they pay back in taxes. you could argue that we're already past that tipping point. the good news is, survey after survey, poll after poll, still shows that we are a center right 70/0 country. 70% of americans want the american dream. they believe the american idea. only 30%en watt their welfare state. what that tells us is at least half of those people currently in that category are there not of their wish or their will. >> ryan's comment were part of the keynote address at a gala dinner hosted by the

in ohio. now mr. obama wants to protect that lead with what supporters had hoped to see wednesday night, a mocking assault on mitt romney. >> when he was asked how he would actually cut spending and reduce the deficit, he said he'd go after funding for public television. elmo, you better make a run for it. >> reporter: on the stump in virginia, romney says the jobless numbers don't tell the whole story. too many workers, he says, have simply stopped looking. >> when i'm president of the united states, that unemployment rate is going to come down, not because people are giving up and dropping out of the work force, but because we're creating more jobs. >> reporter: with the unexpected drop, some saw a conspiracy. former general electric chairman jack welch seemed to accuse the obama campaign of cooking the books, tweeting unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything. can't debate, so change numberns. later on "hardball", welch admitted he has no evidence to back that up, but he remained defiant. >> i don't want to take back one word in that tweet. it seems coincidental
